    "I was using a Dynamic IP address so every time it used to get change and parental control was not working. So i requested MY ISP to provide me a static IP which he did."

    This was not needed.  Simply running an update client would have done it already.

    "Now problem is it says i am not using OPEN DNS in the test page. and my parental control is also not working any more."

    Copy & paste the complete plain text output of the following diagnostic commands to here:

    nslookup -type=txt debug.opendns.com. 208.67.220.220
    nslookup -type=txt which.opendns.com.
    nslookup whoami.akamai.net.

    Hi thanks for the reply rotblitz. I was using an updater before but the problem was the updater was showing an error message when ever ip used to change. That is your parental control settings might not work due to dns ip and http ip mismatch. So i requested for static ip from my isp.
    Shortly i will paste the output in plain text

    "dns ip and http ip mismatch"

    In this case in addition to the commands above: what IP address is returned from http://myip.dnsomatic.com/ ?

    *** resolver2.opendns.com can't find debug.opendns.com.: Non-existent domain

     

    C:\Users\COM>nslookup -type=txt which.opendns.com

    a.root-servers.net internet address = 198.41.0.4

     

    nslookup whoami.akamai.net

    DNS request timed out.
    timeout was 2 seconds.
    Server: UnKnown
    Address: 208.67.222.222

    Non-authoritative answer:
    Name: whoami.akamai.net.ib-wrb304n.setup.in
    Address: 51.254.41.57

     

    Just to test: my DNS updater dont show any IP address too. I wonder there some thing wrong with the setting of my router

    As I suspected, getting a static IP address from your ISP was to no avail to resolve your former problems.

    Your ISP intercepts your DNS traffic and redirects it to their own DNS service, preventing you from using any 3rd party DNS service like OpenDNS.  And there may still be a DNS and HTTP IP address mismatch too.  There is nothing wrong with your router settings.  It's solely your ISP.

    Btw, you do not need to run the Updater with a static IP address.

    What you can do is to contact your ISP for opting out from this DNS redirection.

    If this is to no avail, you can try to circumvent the restriction with using https://dnscrypt.info/

    Thanks Rotblitz. I reverted back to dynamic ip. As static IP was not even allowing me use Open DNS.  So what you said it true

    "our ISP intercepts your DNS traffic and redirects it to their own DNS service, preventing you from using any 3rd party DNS service like OpenDNS."

    I have asked ISP for some solution and they told they will revert back.

    Many thanks for you valuable time and help
